Fujitsu's New LifeBook P Series - Best Of Show at COMDEX
|Fujitsu PC Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Fujitsu Limited, has announced its LifeBook P Series was named "Best Notebook" and overall "Best of Show" at COMDEX Fall 2001 by show organizer Key3Media Group Inc. and sponsors CIO, Computerworld, InfoWorld, Network World and PC World.|
The Best of COMDEX Awards recognize the most innovative and influential products and technologies exhibited at COMDEX Fall. After considering nearly 400 candidates, a panel of senior editors from the five sponsor publications determined the LifeBook P Series to be the most noteworthy and impressive product at the show. Eighteen awards were announced in all, seventeen awards for their individual categories and one for "Best of Show."
"The combination of the great value pricing and outstanding features, including its petite size, low weight, outstanding battery life, impressive, crisp screen and DVD/CD-RW combo drive, makes Fujitsu's LifeBook P Series stand apart from the competition and was a clear choice for the 'Best of Show' award," said Michael Lasky, senior editor of PC World.
Fujitsu's LifeBook P Series is the world's smallest and lightest two-spindle notebook computer. Its modular bay can house either a DVD/CD-RW combo drive or a second battery. With the high capacity battery and 2nd bay battery, the LifeBook P Series reaches up to 14.5 hours(1) of battery life. Yet it measures only 10.6 inches wide by 7 inches deep by 1.59 inches high and weighs a mere 3.4 pounds with its optical drive installed.
"These prestigious awards for the LifeBook P Series are a tribute to the efforts of every member of the Fujitsu team," said Toshio Morohoshi, president and chief executive officer of Fujitsu PC Corporation. "Their commitment to excellence and innovation is why we can offer our customers unprecedented mobility, functionality and performance in one very small machine."
The LifeBook P Series, the newest addition to Fujitsu's LifeBook family of notebook computers was announced on October 22, 2001 and is scheduled to ship in December with an estimated street price starting at $1,499 USD.
